Snorkel gear included
Led by a local guide
After hotel or port pickup in Grand Turk, board a power catamaran for a comfortable 15-minute ride to Gibbs Cay for your stingray encounter. On the way, view other uninhabited and interconnected Caribbean islands in Grand Turk Cays Land and Sea National Park. Your guide will make a stop for your small group to snorkel in the barrier reef, where parrot fish and butterfly fish are among the myriad species that swim through the colorful corals.
Arrive at Gibbs Cay, established as the best place in Turks and Caicos to see the southern stingrays. Stand in less than 2 feet (.6 meters) of water near the shore – shallow enough for small children to feel comfortable. You'll descend into the crystal-clear waters from the white sands at unspoiled Gibbs Cay Beach and watch the graceful stingrays glide along the surface.
Your guide will explain their biology and behavior, in addition to how they’ve adapted to the human presence in these protected waters. While you swim and snorkel with the stingrays, learn about their breeding and eating patterns as well as how they deter and hide from predators.
If you’d like, spend some free time lounging on the island or combing its beach for seashells. Don’t miss a chance to get a photo with the stingrays for bragging rights when you return home! After your amazing experience, your guide will deliver you by catamaran and motorized vehicle to your Grand Turk hotel or the cruise ship terminal.
